MADAM Tamar, Weston’s best-known clairvoyant, has died at the age of 96.
Her real name was Peggy Livingstone and she died on Saturday after a 50-year career of psychic reading in the town.
The Christian psychic clairvoyant had a large customer base having once run an office in the town, and even gave a reading on the day before she died.
Her reputation was so strong she was once asked to help police solve cases.
Niece Sheila Hewitt described Peggy as a much-loved and trusted resident of the town.
She said: “She was a great character with lots of personality, she helped so many people and they would constantly ask her for help and advice.”
Mrs Livingstone, born in Cumbria, moved to Weston with her late husband Lynn Williams, who went to work at RAF Locking.
She then married Joe Livingstone and lived in Clarendon Road until her sudden death.
A funeral will be held at Weston Crematorium at 11am on January 4.
